Pick Progress is a project focused on sharing stories of Black individuals and highlighting elements of Black culture. In 2019 I started working on this personal project to give back to my community. Pick Progress pushed my creative abilities in various ways: I taught myself 3D print and AutoCAD modeling and expanded my interviewing skills. Additionally, I hand-painted the original 31 afro-picks, developed the Pick Progress website and created all the other assets featured on the social media sites. Pick Progress features over 50 long-form interviews. Take a look at the entire project at pickprogressproject.com.
